Cursor moves when pressing direction keys

I am working on a Lenovo ideapad 330, with the latest windows 10 (1903). When I press the regular direction keys on my keyboard, my cursor moves in the direction I am pressing. I would like my cursor not to move when I press the direction keys.  How can I stop this behavior?

Thank you,

Yehuda

I had the same problem and found out that it is caused by Microsoft Paint.

Closing Microsoft Paint will make the problem go away since aparently it has a feature that allows you to move the curser with the arrow keys and it sometimes doesn't realize when it looses focus and keeps this behaviour when it is running in the background.

The thread I found that helped me figure this out:
